Rebate Year: We are considering requiring that point-of-sale rebate amounts be based on average manufacturer rebates expected to be received for each drug category or class under the manufacturer rebate agreements for the current payment year, not historical rebate experience. To the extent that rebate agreements are structured with contingencies that would be unclear at the point of sale, sponsors would be required to base the point-of-sale rebate amount on a good faith estimate of the rebates expected to be received. We solicit comments on whether this approach would ensure that the price available to beneficiaries at the point of sale reflects the actual price of a drug at that time, or if an alternative approach would do so more effectively.
The proposed changes at § 422.590(f) would result in a slight reduction of burden to Part C plans by no longer requiring a Notice of Appeal Status for each case file forwarded to the IRE. The estimated savings of this proposed change is based on reduced plan administration costs. Using the number of partially and fully adverse cases, we estimate Part C plans forwarded 47,108 cases to the IRE in 2015. We estimate it will take 5 minutes (0.083 hours) to complete this notice. We used an adjusted hourly wage of $34.66 based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics May 2016 Web site for occupation code 43-9199, “All other office and administrative support workers,” which gives a mean hourly salary of $17.33, which when multiplied by a factor of two to include overhead, and fringe benefits, resulting in $34.66 an hour. Thus, the reduction in administrative time spent would be 0.083 hours × 47,108 cases = 3,926 hours with a consequent savings of 3,926 hours × $34.66 per hour = $136,064.
Turning 26? Stay covered with the insurance and providers you've come to know and trust. Part B Late Enrollment Penalty If you don't sign up for Part B when you're first eligible, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty for as long as you have Medicare. Your monthly premium for Part B may go up 10% for each full 12-month period that you could have had Part B, but didn't sign up for it. Usually, you don't pay a late enrollment penalty if you meet certain conditions that allow you to sign up for Part B during a special enrollment period.

Physicians and Surgeons 29-1060 101.04 101.04 202.08 Software Coming just months after Congress repealed the individual mandate, the new rule will open up relatively unregulated short-term health insurance as an alternative to heavily regulated Obamacare plans—which until December were the only ones that qualified under the mandate. The Trump administration isn’t wrong when it states that these plans will be cheaper, too. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, some short-term plans currently have premiums that are less than a tenth of those for the lowest cost plans on some Obamacare exchanges. While for many consumers, the ACA’s premium tax credits drastically lower the actual amount they pay in monthly premiums, there’s little doubt that short-term plans will still be less expensive overall, and that’s a big deal for the families squeezed by Obamacare premiums, which increased again this year.

Defense Department 34 16 Flu outbreak has killed at least 63 children: CDC officials Individuals and entities that were revoked from Medicare or, for unenrolled individuals and entities, had engaged in conduct that could serve as a basis for an applicable revocation prior to the effective date of this rule (if finalized) could, if the requirements of § 422.222(a) are met, be added to the preclusion list upon said effective date even though the underlying action (for instance, felony conviction) occurred prior to that date. The proposed payment denials under § 422.222(a), however, would only apply to health care items or services furnished on or after the date the individual or entity was added to the preclusion list; that is, payment denials would not be made retroactive to the date of the revocation or, for unenrolled individuals and entities, the conduct that could serve as a basis for an applicable revocation occurring before the effective date of the final rule. Likewise, health care items and services furnished by individuals and entities revoked from Medicare or engaging in conduct that could serve as a basis for an applicable revocation after the rule's effective date and that are subsequently added to the preclusion list would not be subject to retroactive payment denials under § 422.222(a); only the date on which the affected individual or entity is added to the preclusion list would be used to determine payment and the start date of payment denials under this proposal. We believe that this approach is the most consistent with principles of due process.
The prescribers to be reviewed would be those who, according to PDE data and CMS' internal systems, are eligible to prescribe drugs covered under the Part D program. That is, our review would not be limited to those persons who are actually prescribing Part D drug, but would include those that potentially could prescribe drugs. We believe that the inclusion of these individuals in our review would help further protect the integrity of the Part D program.
